Little Barrel and Brown

Chicken steeped in buttermilk and fried; excellent risotto with forest mushrooms and spinach; and buttered cornbread for dessert await you here.
1716 South Congress, 512/582-1229

Magnolia Cafe South

This second location packs 'em in 24/7 like the original. If you can't decide between a garden or bison burger, get the gingerbread pancakes or try the Neptunian Landscape.

Opal Divine's Penn Field

With more than 60 whiskeys and 36 beers on tap, any pub lover can get a party started. Its burgers are made with Harris Ranch beef, and some think the wurst plate is best.
